COVID-19 safety preparations

  • Pick up some extra masks and hand sanitizer for check-in.
    Email pictures of receipts to [email protected] with your Paypal or Venmo info and we will reimburse you up to $25 directly.
  • Set up a check-in table, chair, or simple sign at the entrance asking guests to wait to be checked in.
  • Print out a Sign-in Sheet (or make your own), and have guests fill it out at check-in. They can also check-in on their phones at and show you the confirmation screen.
    Please hold onto the sign-in sheet for 2 weeks after the show; if someone tests positive for COVID-19 we'll ask you for a picture of it so we can contact everyone!

Prepare for success

  • Ask friends and community members to RSVP on
  • Set up comfortable floor and chair seating — avoid rows of chairs if you can!

Emcee your groupmuse

  • Gather everyone together for the music (no side conversations).
  • Give the Groupmuse spiel:
    • Welcome guests to your home.
    • Explain what Groupmuse is.
    • Introduce the musicians.
  • After the music (and once during intermission!) remind everyone to pay the musicians, either with cash in the bowl, or at
    Pro tip: After 10-15 minutes, walk around with the bowl for "last call."

Uphold our Community Standards

  • Say hi to everyone!
  • Be respectful of the music, the artists, and the crowd!
  • Promote a safe environment.
  • Make sure folks are comfortable (i.e. older groupmusers have chairs, etc.)
